It has happened in the States too, for other reasons to.
While I may agree that some parents give their children ridiculous
names, and I rather dislike a number of these "unique" names, I find it
extraordinarily disturbing the level of unethical and unwarranted government control some of you claim to be comfortable with.
It's funny-- when I was younger I used to wonder how
we had seemed to lose so many liberties since the founding of this country... and
seemingly more to come (or go, as the case may be). But that, of course, was many years before I started reading posts here.
So I ask you: who is dumber?
The parents who would name their children stuff like "Moxie Crimefighter" or "Trixabell whatever," for
their own reasons... or people who would agree with, neigh, advocate
greater government control and loss of freedoms just because they dislike
someone else' name.....?
It's stuff like this which makes me think the biggest (and most basic unit of) human folly is the notion that anyone
has, or should have,
the right to dictate what others can and can not do. (Providing no one else is truly harmed, or their own free will massively interfered with in the
process.) Humans, to me, often seem like a bunch of bossy know-it-alls. What makes you think your way is best, or worse, "right?"
